LONDON, Ohio — Researchers found that a household product can effectively clean fentanyl spills.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Bowling Green State University President Mary Ellen Mazey announced that OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover has been proven effective in cleaning up fentanyl spills. Sodium percarbonate is an ingredient in the product, which has been shown to break down fentanyl.

“This new scientific research is great news for Ohio’s first responders, and responders across the nation, as we are all forced to deal with the day-to-day reality of the opioid epidemic,” DeWine said.  “This is the kind of research that can make a difference for Ohioans, which we plan to do more of at the Ohio Attorney General’s Center for the Future of Forensic Science, alongside our amazing scientific partners at BGSU.”

The Ohio Attorney General Bureau of Criminal Investigation released a bulletin with instructions, such as proper protective gear responders should wear when cleaning the spills.

The bulletin also states that while generic versions of OxiClean were not researched, the product should be safe to use if it contains sodium percarbonate.
